In the village of Fontenais the cat has attacked two people, seriously injured another cat and is soiling property.

There are also reports it’s jumping on children.

The cantonal veterinary office says the cat is a public health concern. It’s thought it maybe suffering from a neurological disorder.

The canton says when it is captured it will be examined. If no disease is found, it will be neutered to see if that changes its behavior.

If not, it will be euthanized.
